About Medford
Medford Massachusetts was settled in 1695 and became a city in 1892. The economic history was based on the ship building trade in colonial times. Ship building was begun by Thatcher Magoun who used lumber harvested from the Fells and New Hampshire which arrived via the Middlesex Canal.

After the ship building industry reached its decline printed cloth and carpets, linseed oil as well as rum and hats became the major products in Medford as did education with the founding of Tufts University in 1852. Because of its industrial prosperity Medford doubled its population every 20 years from 1870 to 1910.

To this day Medford is a well populated city in a very convenient location filled with many suburban neighborhoods. However it still retains a rich architectural heritage containing many historic sites which include monuments and houses-some of which date back the 17th century.

Global Citizens Model United Nations Experience (MiniMUN III) for 5th and 6th graders

MiniMUN III is a chance for fifth and sixth graders to have a Model United Nations experience in order to get a taste of what Model United Nations is all about.   Students are provided with a guide to the topic which will be discussed/debated, and with a country position statement that explains their country's position on said topic and the reasons for those positions, as well as what solutions their country would be likely to support or to oppose.  At the beginning of the conference, students will be given a brief introduction to the United Nations, and then during the afternoon they will be helped to learn the proces of debate, the rules of Model UN Debate, how to present themselves in debate, how to negotiate and work together, and how to write working papers and resolutions.  Opening Ceremonies will be centered around the participants and will be engaging and motivating for them, and Closing Ceremonies will center around a celebration of what they have done during the afternoon.

We are asking for a $30 registration fee to cover our costs (printing, nametags, paper, pens, printer ink, folders, snacks for during the conference, and so forth).  However, anyone who would not be able to participate because this fee imposes a burden need simply send us an email and we will register them directly -- no questions asked, it is an honor system for financial aid. If you can pay part of the fee, send us an email to register and tell us what you can pay, and then send us a check for what you can afford to contribute.  Schools, church groups, after school programs, and other community groups should contact us regarding alternative pricing and payment options.  Additionally, while it is fine to register and pay via Eventbrite we don't receive those funds til after the conference, so we would be even happier to receive an email registration followed by a mailed check; checks can be mailed to ARMUN, c/o Kim Kay Holt, 2 Orchard Place #2, Arlington, MA 02476.  If you register via eventbrite or if you want to register by email, please email us with your student's name, grade, school (or status as homeschooled), and your email and phone number in case we need to reach you.  The email to use for all MiniMUN related issues is

Thank you and see you at MiniMUN III in November!

If you are wondering what comes after MiniMUN for your student, here are some possibilities:  A number of schools already have middle school (6th - 8th grade) Model UN clubs where your student could get involved.  If your school doesn't have a club but you can get them interested in starting one, ARMUN is happy to provide assistance to anyone starting a club, and the United Nations Association of Greater Boston also provides technical assistance and professional development to schools starting clubs.  Additionally, schools can access the UNICEF USA Global Classroooms curriculum for use in a variety of in-class settings, as well as curriculums from Facing the Future which are carefully designed to meet standards in a number of different subject areas (UNICEF's curriculums are free, Facing the Future's must be purchased -- both are outstanding).  ARMUN has an independent club for 5th - 8th Graders, the Middle School Model UN & Civic Engagement Club, which is open to all area students of that age without regard to what school they attend or homeschool status.  If you are interested in more information about that, simply email us.  We also maintain a list of 5th - 8th graders who can't regularly participate in our club but who want to be alerted when we are having in-club debates, doing major events including service projects or going to outside group's events, and so forth, and we are happy to place student's who have been at MiniMUN on this list.   Finally, if your student is a fifth grader, they can come to MiniMUN again next year!  And when they reach high school, most area high schools, as of this year that includes Arlington High School, offer Model UN and there is also the option of ARMUN's independent high school club.  Thanks. Hope that answers some of your questions in advance. Feel free to email with further questions or for more information.

Biodiversity for a Livable Climate: Restoring Ecosystems to Reverse Global Warming

Schedule: Friday, 6-9 p.m. - Saturday, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. - Sunday, 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.

Promoting the power of nature to remove excess carbon from the atmosphere where it does untold damage, and restore it to the soils where it supports abundant life and reverses global warming.

We are telling a new story.  Each of our speakers presents a chapter in the remarkable narrative of life on earth in the 21st century.  We humans are a key part of that narrative, and while there are many parts they all come together in a single tale.  We will weave those parts together so that each presentation is part of the whole, a whole that builds a different and more hopeful worldview than we’ve heard in a long time.  We have a lot of work to do and heavy paradigms to shift, but we can and will tell the new story with exciting and hopeful outcomes.

Our Boston conference has a roster of expert speakers followed by an international series of events bringing together climate advocates, farmers, ranchers, scientists, social scientists, policymakers, NGOs, artists, visionaries and the general public – in other words, any and all of us – for a non-technical discussion to consider:

  1. The exceptional potential of the biosphere to address all of our current emissions, as well as to remove the 125 parts per million of excess carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
  2. Effective action on a global scale by applying eco-regenerative approaches to lands and waters worldwide.
  3. The use of biological systems to re-establish healthy water cycles to cool the earth’s surface.

Our primary urgent goal in the face of widespread breakdown in addressing climate change is to further the understanding necessary to embark on the global regeneration process made possible by enabling the forces of biology. Collectively we will present affordable strategies for eco-restoration that local, national and international governments, agencies, communities and individuals may rapidly implement in order to reverse global warming.

The 2014 Eco-Rep Symposium at Tufts University will bring together the region’s most passionate student leaders for sustainability. Students will have the opportunity to share insights from their campus experiences and build networks they will be able to tap into for future sustainable ventures.

The main portion of the symposium will take place on Saturday, November 15th with registration beginning at 11am and activities ending at 5pm. Tickets are $15 for students and faculty/staff. Since there is limited space for the symposium, we will be capping registration at 10 people per university.*

Staff and Faculty are encouraged to register for his Introductory and Advanced CBSM workshops taking place during the following week also here at Tufts and may not participate in the Sunday workshop.

If there is interest, we will organize professional development activities for staff members on Sunday while their students are in the workshop (e.g. trip to the aquarium with your fellow sustainability officers!). Activity costs for Sunday's staff event are not included in the registration.

Traditional Martial Arts Tournament to Benefit the Boston Rescue Mission

What will be demonstrated?

Here is a video of TMA Medalists demonstrating some of the 8 Complete Martial Arts movements taught in Oom Yung Doe Schools at the 2014 Reading Fall Fair


What is the differences between a Tradtional Martial Arts (TMA) Tournament vs common martial arts?

The common understanding of Traditional Martial Arts (TMA) in Asia is that it incorporates morals, etiquette, and meaning along with mental, physical and spiritual development – but in the U.S. the common focus is on a visible target. The focus of TMA tournaments is on winning over yourself, whereas the focus on tournaments of common martial arts or sports is winning over others. In the U.S. today most tournaments focus purely on winning over your opponent. Winning over others is victory, winning over yourself is success.  If you only challenge yourself to be better than someone else then you will never reach your fullest potential.  The goal is to challenge yourself, or ‘win over yourself’, to reach your fullest potential for your ultimate mental, physical, and spiritual development; that is success. This success directly improves every aspect of your life; you carry that with you always.

How much are tickets?

Tickets are $5 with a non-perishable food donation for the Boston Rescue Mission. The Boston Rescue Mission is a life-transforming center in the heart of downtown Boston, providing meals and shelter 365 days a year. 


Who can attend?

This event is open to the public. All are welcome.


Where is it located and how do I get there?

The event is located at the McGlynn School in Medford, minutes from exit 31 off of I-93. 


Where can I park?

There is ample free parking located at the event.
